Share this post

NEW YORK — New York Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the expansion of the Office for New Americans’ Professional Pathways for High-Skilled Immigrants Program to help new Americans find jobs that match their skills and experience. As part of the program’s expansion, a total of $4.38 million in state-funded grants will be awarded to community-based providers to support professional training and job-placement efforts for an increased number of high-skilled immigrants in New York. The grants will be awarded over three years and are administered by the New York State Office for New Americans.

“It is an honor to lead the charge in New York State’s efforts to support immigrants and refugees restarting their lives and careers in the U.S. Newcomers often bring extensive education and experience from their countries of origin but find their skills overlooked by the U.S. job market. The Professional Pathways program’s expansion serves as an exceptional model for uplifting the potential of immigrant and refugee communities, a pillar of our work at Upwardly Global,” says Upwardly Global President and CEO Jina Krause-Vilmar.
